An elven years old boy was murdered at the hands of his master in the city only for the reason that hungry servant tried to eat something from master’s fridge without his prior permission.

Chief minister Punjab Hamza Shahbaz Sharif has taken notice of the incident and asked IG police Punjab to bring the responsible to justice.

In a revolting incident of maltreatment of children illegally employed as domestic help, the house owners in posh Defence area of Lahore killed an 11-year-old boy who was simply satiating his hunger pangs without the permission of his employers and injured his younger brother on Tuesday.

CM Hamza sought a report from Punjab IGP in this regard and ordered police to take stern action against the perpetrators of this brutality on a small child who was working as a domestic helper. He also directed to provide best medical facilities to the deceased boy’s younger brother who also got a good thrashing by the house owners and sustained injuries.

Hamza said it’s a despicable act to take the life of a child on such a petty thing.

He asked the IGP to fulfill all requirements of justice while condoling with the bereaved family on their irreparable loss.

He assured them of the provision of justice. According to police, 11-year-old Kamran and his 7-year-old brother Rizwan, residents of Bahawalpur, used to work as domestic helpers in a house situated in Defence Phase III. On the day of the incident, hungry Kamran tried to take something to eat from the fridge of his owners. But seeing him taking something from the fridge and munching it, his owners got infuriated and started beating him up cruelly. The poor, delicate child could not take the severe beating anymore and died.
